The  [course_title] course familiarises you with the basic concepts of dynamics of large-scale circulations in oceans and atmospheres including mass and momentum conservation, hydrostatic and geostrophic balance, and pressure and other vertical coordinates. The fundamental conservation and balance principles for large-scale flow, generation and dissipation of quasi-balanced eddies, equilibrated quasi-balanced systems will be covered in the course. Finally, the course illustrates the examples of oceanic and atmospheric quasi-balanced flows, computational models, and rotating tank experiments.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.


Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.
